Great Grandma sewing catastrophe = re-making = whistling = Belle + gorgeous fun ...

Endeavouring to be the ultimate Great-Grandma ...
the task was a romper for Belle ...
that became a dress ...
no way ...
could I get those darn metal fasteners to work at the crotch! 
Finding the shirring sold by the metre in Lincraft ...
was a dream come true ...
until I measured the finished dress and realised ...
it was half her total chest measurement!
Taaaa Daaaaa ...
the catastrophe ...
fixed and finished ...
Belle looks a dream ...
as we we were having a moment ...
I started giving her the old wolf whistle ...
she was fascinated ...
the more I whistled the more she laughed ...
and laughed ...
she laughed hard ...
and loud ...
while looking so very gorgeous in MaMa's creation!

Mummy and I dashed off to Lincraft ...
there's more dresses to make ...
watch this space!

That is too cute and precious! I'm laughing because I could just imagine the wolf whistles and laughter!

I loved every bit! Just beautiful ... what a scrumptious great, grandma you make!

Sewing catastrophes? I don't believe it!
